Approaches to 21st Century Skills in Europe and North America
Many OECD countries set the development of 21st-century skills, such as creativity and critical thinking, high on their higher education policy agenda and adopted policies to support this goal. Approaches to foster students’ 21st-century skills differ across countries, from updating quality assurance systems and providing targeted funding to organising teaching awards and offering professional learning opportunities to teachers. Yet, little is known about which policy instruments are most effective in different contexts.

In this 60-minute webinar, three experts from Europe and North America will discuss how governments can help institutions and faculty members foster students’ 21st-century skills. The webinar is part of a two-day online event supporting the OECD project “Teaching, Learning and Assessing Creativity and Critical Thinking in Higher Education”.

Speakers include:
– Susan Carson, Program Director, National Science Foundation, United States
– Claire McAvinia, Educational Developer - Professional Development, National Forum for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning in Higher Education, Ireland
– Jason Yeung, Senior Policy Advisor, Postsecondary Education Quality Assessment Board, Ontario Ministry of Colleges and Universities, Canada

Moderation by Mathias Bouckaert and Shizuka Kato, Analysts, Directorate for Education and Skills, OECD
